Vangst Relaunches to Streamline Talent Recruitment

Logo: Vangst

DENVER — Vangst, the leading recruitment platform for the legal cannabis industry, today announced a new feature on the redesigned company website that will enable cannabis companies to upload temporary and permanent jobs, review applications and autonomously match with ideal candidates from one unified dashboard. This relaunch allows faster and easier talent connections and takes cannabis talent sourcing to the next level.

Vangst elected to accelerate the launch schedule of its new website feature rollout in response to the COVID-19 outbreak that has created unprecedented challenges for the cannabis industry and economy at large. The self-serve digital talent matching solution will be offered for free to a record number of candidates seeking gainful employment in the industry. 


The new system aims to relieve the pressures of connecting job seekers and job posters by providing barrier-free, on-demand access that minimizes the time, cost and communications considerations of more traditional recruiting services. Employers will also experience more successful matches through Vangst-Verified, a unique screening process that ensures each candidate is personally endorsed by a Vangst team member for quality and commitment. 

“The revamped Vangst website reflects our dedication to building community, advancing cannabis careers and companies and being the preeminent resource for talent matching in a time when it is needed more than ever,” says Vangst CEO Karson Humiston. “Our rapid and thoughtful response to the industry’s demands personifies Vangst’s core ethos of ‘let’s get cannabis to work.’”

Vangst will still offer its white-glove recruiting services for clients who want an even higher level of support. Additional product and service offerings in line with its focus on connection, community and industry insight are planned to roll out later this year.
